Château Minuty is a magnificent wine-growing property from the 18th century that belongs to the Matton-Farnet family since the early 1900s. The small hills of the vineyards of Château Minuty are exposed to the quaint village of Gassin, which is situated in the centre of the Presqu'île of Saint-Tropez. The optimum sunshine of Saint-Tropez encourages perfect maturity of the grapes grown at the château.
The expression of the traditional Provençal vines is enhanced by techniques of modern vinification. Château Minuty excludes herbicides and pesticides from their vineyard.
Notes and Reviews
James Suckling 91
Here’s a sexy rosé that follows the Provence formula to a tee. It displays freshly sliced pears, nectarines and strawberries. Medium body, bright acidity and a racy, textured finish. Drink now.
